Welcome to my record-breaking challenge: the world's longest triathlon, from Munich to Munich via the world.

During my challenge, I aim to cover the distance of 120 Ironmans (roughly 40.000 kilometers/24 900 miles) – with a minimal CO2 footprint.

UPDATE June 2021:

Another big milestone has been reached: after 17,000 kilometres and a winter crossing of Siberia, I have reached the Russian Pacific coast. I set off from Munich on 26 September 2020. I cycled over the Alps to Karlobag on the Croatian coast. From there I swam 450 kilometres along the Adriatic coast and reached Dubrovnik on 22 November after 54 days in the water. In the process, I set a new record for the longest swim without an escort boat. From Dubrovnik, I cycled further east with the goal of reaching the Pacific coast in Vladivostok, Siberia, in the spring. And here I am, despite all the difficulties with Corona and the visa for Russia.

The next step was actually to cross the Pacific. For a long time I looked for a "ride" on a sailing boat, but in vain. In the end, I was lucky to get a flight to the east and even with this option, it was uncertain for a long time whether I would arrive at my destination. Fortunately, it worked out and I reached Mexico. In mid-June, I will set off from Tijuana on the 5,000-kilometre run. I will be pulling my luggage behind me on a trailer. And if all goes well, I'll be back in Munich at the end of the year. But a lot can happen until then...

    Marathon Nr. 115 done and now approaching Cancun 🎯.
    I set off from Chichen Itza together with Pro Triathlete and fellow Ryzon ambassador Matthias who was taking some pictures today and joined for some running. The police escort is also back following to Cancun. The morning passed by quickly and easy running fast, but the final 10 km in the heat of noon were again brutal. Arrived in beautiful Valladolid absolutely finished, the last proper city before Cancun.

    Hello from Campeche 💪!
    After some very long days, I had a shorter day with 35 km today. I set off early and ran along the coast to arrive at the beautiful old town of Campeche at noon, where I got a great reception.

    In the afternoon I took some time to visit the amazing old town with its colourful streets and recovered a bit for the final 500 km to Cancun 🏃‍♂️🎯💪.

    The first sign of Cancun 🎯💪. Today I set off in the dark to avoid the heat. The roads here are incredibly boring, straight and flat through endless cattle farming areas. Completed the marathon before noon and spent 4 hours in the restaurant to wait for a few clouds. I set off again and ran to the next village where I finished at 61 km 🏃‍♂️💪
    Now approaching the Gulf of Mexico and some great beaches 🌴🤗
